1 All glory be to God on high
and thanks to him forever!
Whatever Satan's host may try,
God foils their dark endeavor.
He bends his ear to every call
and offers peace, good will to all,
and calms the troubled spirit.
2 O Father, for your lordship true
we give you praise and honor;
we worship you, we trust in you,
we give you thanks forever.
Your will is perfect, and your might
relentlessly confirms the right;
your lordship is our blessing.
3 Lord Jesus Christ, the only Son
of God, creation's author,
redeemer of your wandering ones,
and source of all true pleasure:
O Lamb of God, O Lord divine,
conform our lives to your design,
and on us all have mercy.
4 O Holy Spirit, perfect gift,
who brings us consolation:
to men and women saved by Christ
assure your inspiration.
Through sickness, need, and bitter death,
grant us your warm, life-giving breath;
our lives are in your keeping.
